PRA.G.E.S. - PRActising Gender Equality in Science - Versione italiana


The University of Queensland (UQ) is one of Australia's premier learning and research institutions. It is the oldest university in Queensland, having been established in 1909, and has produced generations of graduates who have gone on to become leaders in all areas of society and industry.

The University is a founding member of the national Group of Eight, an alliance of research-strong "sandstone" universities committed to ensuring that Australia has higher education institutions which are genuinely world class. It belongs also to the global Universitas 21 alliance. This group aims to enhance the quality of university outcomes through international benchmarking and a joint venture e-learning project with The Thomson Corporation.

In 1998-99 it was named Australia's University of the Year.
UQ remains the most successful Australian university in winning and being shortlisted for Australian Awards for University Teaching since they were established in 1997.
On a variety of measures it is one of the top three or four research universities in the country and this success was underlined last year when it celebrated its 5000th PhD graduation.

UQ also is building a cluster of international-quality research centres and institutes that will keep it at the frontiers of emerging research fields, particularly the biosciences.
